ANSWER

THE MINISTER OF STATE FOR HEAVY INDUSTRIES & PUBLIC ENTERPRISES
(SHRI BABUL SUPRIYO)

(a) to (c): The total number of personnel employed in Central Public Sector Enterprises (CPSEs) during 2017-18 at 14.26 lakhs (provisional estimates) was lowest as compared to 14.72 lakhs in 2016-17, 15.01 lakhs in 2015-16 and 15.66 lakhs in 2014-15. The manpower planning and deployment in CPSEs is aligned to the objectives and targets of their business plan, prevailing business conditions & requirements and other factors like future operations, expansion / investment plan etc. As per available information, the other reasons for changes in manpower employment include retirement, attrition and Voluntary Retirement Scheme (VRS) / Voluntary Separation Schemes (VSS) etc. in CPSEs.

(d) & (e): The proportion of regular employees to total employees during the last four years i.e. 2014-15 to 2017-18 has remained between 82% to 76%. As mentioned above, the reasons for change in manpower employment include prevailing business conditions & requirements and other factors like future operations, expansion / investment plan, retirement etc.

(f): As a social safety measure, Government is implementing Counselling, Re-training and Redeployment (CRR) scheme for employees of CPSEs who have been released under VRS / VSS. These separated employees have opportunity of self / wage employment after short duration skill training under the CRR scheme. In case an employee does not opt for training for him/her self, his/her dependent is eligible for training under the scheme.
